The State Department and USCIS have jointly announced a new procedure to allow individuals whose immigrant visa cases are stuck in backlogs to begin filing their immigrant visa or adjustment of status applications before their priority dates become current. In October 2015 there will be two Visa Bulletin charts available: 1) an “Application Final Action Dates” chart and 2) a “Dates for Filing Applications” chart. Individuals may refer to dates on the “Dates for Filing Applications” chart to determine when they may submit their immigrant visa or adjustment of status application.
